‘Insanely hot chilli with a gnarly look’
The Kraken Scorpion is originally created by Mike Hess in the States. It’s a cross between a Chocolate Scorpion and Bhut Jolokia Carbon.
A stocky plant, that grows well in a pot to about a meter in height.
An amazing producer of super hot chillies, that start off green and turn a dark brown once ripen. Thin walled and very crunchy with a light sweet flavour. When you dry the chillies they get a delicious smokey flavour to them.
The pods are elongated and sometimes grow a little signature tail at the pointed end of the chilli. A very cool looking chilli with a very rough pimply outer skin and the heat is extreme. A great choice for making a hot sauce or a very hot chilli powder.
All in all a stunning looking plant and an amazing producer of delicious tasting chillies, its definitely one worth growing.
Pods size: 7 cm long and 3 cm wide
Flavour: A light sweet when fresh and smokey after you dry them.
Heat level: Extreme heat
10-12 chilli seeds per pack
